MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- The Josephine County Sheriff's Office says the body of a 19-year-old man who slipped on a rock and fell into the Rogue River two weeks ago has been recovered.

A group of rafters this weekend discovered the body of Joshua Eddy more than a mile upstream from the Rogue River Ranch.

The Rogue River man was with friends May 5 when he lost his footing while trying to take a picture and fell into the water. The strong current swept him away.

The Mail Triibune newspaper reports (http://is.gd/Scq8U ) that more than 500 people attended Eddy's memorial service Saturday.
